HTML in Address Two email

Learning some basic HTML coding will make it much easier to deal with your email templates. HTML is easy to learn and easy to use.

In an HTML web page this code:
<html>
<body>

<h1>My First Heading</h1>

<p>My first paragraph.</p>

</body>
</html>

Produces a page that looks like:

My First Heading

My first paragraph

In an HTML email in Address Two, you don’t have to worry about the tags outside of the <body></body> tags. You can start with the meat of the email.

When you start a plain letter email template in Address Two, you get the following HTML code:

<p style="font-size: small; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">
Hello %%FirstName_%%,
</p>
<p style="font-size: small; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">
This default greeting will auto-merge the first name of each recipient. Write your message here.
</p>
<p style="font-size: small; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">
Regards,
<br />Chad</p>


This code produces this email:

Hello %%FirstName_%%,
This default greeting will auto-merge the first name of each recipient. Write your message here.
Regards,
Chad
